Good.

I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Is there any coach we like? It seems like I need to be rooting against all of them.

I love the fact that Kevin Weekes is now one of the most plugged-in media people. He rocks.

I'm down for whoever the Stars don't hire, but only after 40 games or so of the coach they do hire.

Agreed. Whatever happens, I just know that it will all be the new coach's fault.

Fun fact, Val and Nick Paul both have more Stanley cup finals goals than Jamie Benn

Good game, better than I thought after the first period, but I still hate Colorado enough to root for TB.

The two newbie goalies playing for Tampa and Colorado seem to have an acceptable level for the NHL. I'm sticking with my Tampa in 5 prediction.

But those Stanley Cup patches are awful. I'm glad we didn't make to the final.

I have recency bias.

I'm not rooting for Colorado just simply rooting for Tampa to lose.

This year rationalization is required. All the teams I like were out early.

Vegas gets rid of a contract in exchange for a dude going on LTIR. Montreal gets a guy on the last year of his deal they'll dump at the deadline as a rental.

I’m still fairly confident that Tampa will win the series LOL. Will prolly head back to Game 5 in CO tied up at two.

And again, everytime Point is not in the line-up, Tampa wins. We didn't know he was anchoring this team since day 1.

And I'm fully on board with Knives: Tampa in 6. Kümper can't win a cup and start again the Niemi's curse.

Nice to have a more competitive game, but CO still looked more controlled than TB.

Corey F Perry has scored a Stanley cup final goal with 4 teams now.

I'm calling it.

Colorado is the magical team of destiny. They even regenerated Cogliano's game.
